My window garden, post 7 - potting, growth, more aphids

All the plants are doing well so far. A couple days after the last time I posted, the peas looked like this:

And now they look like this:

In the next couple of days I'll be putting up trellis for them; ok, by trellis I mean rope. It'll work.

The other baby plants are doing nicely. Here's the eggplant and tomatillos, and a couple of the beans pre-transplantation:

And here are the okra and melons, just prior to transplant:

Replanting the melons and beans:

Some of the new melons and beans happy in their new home:

And here are the beans I transplanted three days ago:

One problem I had, just a couple of days after the last aphids, was.. more aphids. This time it was black aphids completely covering one of the chives. Easy to take care of at least; more insecticidal soap. Chives are still doing well, and the rosemary too:

And the sage, basil, and lavender:

The mint has gotten a couple more aphids, but nothing severe.

The ancho peppers have just started to come up, and there's nothing from the red peppers yet (no surprise), but the rocoto has at least one pepper starting to turn - and the second plant finally has two flowers on it! Here's hoping!

Now I just have to pot the tomatillos, eggplant, anchos, red peppers, and parsley. If everything decides to come up. I'm starting to run out of room tho, I might have to pick and choose how many plants!
